It looks like former NFL star Andre Rison can now join the likes of Scottie Pippen in the category of "I wildly misspent all the millions I made during my successful career." Rison is now facing a court-ordered bankruptcy to pay back over $105,000 in back child support and other debts. Oops.
According to the court petition Rison owes the money for child support, court costs, and attorney fees.
Rison's ex-wife, Tonja Rison is listed as one of the creditors. Her claim is for more than $58,000 in child support. An Atlanta law office is claiming another $46,000 in unpaid legal fees for seeking child support from Rison for two children by a girlfriend.Rison's NFL pension has already been liquidated, and they're still seeking more. Maybe if Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez hadn't burnt down his house all those years ago he might have more to offer. But as it stands now Rison owns very little that can even be liquidated. Here's guessing that Rison may star in a few more episodes of "Pros Vs. Joes" in order to pay off his debts. He and Kordell Stewart already had an epic battle Will Leitch and A.J. Daulerio earlier this year. Which blogger is next?
But listen Andre, it's child support. It's for your own kid. Find a way to make it happen.
